“The new program features music by Purcell, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Fauré, Villa-Lobos, and Rodrigo, as well as selected spirituals. Joining Battle is acclaimed harpist Bridget Kibbey and two-time Grammy-nominated guitarist Chico Pinheiro.”

So says the Met’s press office.

Adherence to the advertised 5:00 PM start time will be at the discretion of the performer.
